    Big organization with lots of bureaucracy, resistant to hiring RNs or MSWs straight out of school, HR takes a long time

    Middle management (PCDs) are great for the most part, upper management is less easy to work with and far less personable.

    I worked at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people at Cornell in the G3OR are fabulous and supportive. Couldn't ask for a better group of people to work with/for.

    Cons

    Staff can get spread thin due to decreased afternoon/evening staff...which meant a large amount of overtime (Which is both a good thing and a bad thing).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
